Dear Sir,

I was favoured with yours last Night and have taken the earliest opportunity in answering it. I have signed the Bond in presence of my Friend that is travelling with me and my Servant. I am not certain whether I may want any Money on my return but will inform you before February, as we think of being in England in June. I so I hope I shall have no occasion for any. I will thank [you] to wait on any person who has the Management [of] poor Bayldon’s Affairs, as he was employed for me [res]pecting a Bastard Child and regulate the matter for me. He also procured some Money for m[e] and if he has any Bill against that pray let that be discharged – with respect to Archer at Flocton I would have you act as you think proper. We leave this in a day or two for Rome & Naples where I shall be glad to hear from you. This is a most delightful Situation. I am now writing with all the Windows open and little or no fire & no Snow or frost. It is like summer. The Company chiefly consists of English the Duke of Bedford Lord & Lady Maynard at the Head with about fifty more Families. The Duke of Gloucester is expected to morrow. I am glad Mrs. Skelton and all my little Friends are well to whom I beg my best Respects, I will write to you when I get settled again – let me know how you [go] on about Bayldon – If Fisher should go, make in[quiries? - missing] for my papers –

I am Dear Sir

Yours most sincerely

Tho Rd Beaumont
